From the press release:

Dark Souls II is the highly anticipated sequel to 2011’s hit Dark Souls, a game that has been lauded as one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences in videogame history. In Dark Souls II, players face sadistic enemies and vile bosses as they journey through a devastated world where every step can turn into a struggle for survival. Only those with battle-hardened skills, strong intestinal fortitude, and cunning will survive their Dark Souls II experience and achieve ultimate glory. Perseverance is key to achieving victory against the unrelenting bloodthirsty enemies and diabolical environments that await adventurers on this arduous journey.
